Shark LT now includes photorealistic rendering to add visual realism to your designs. Drag and drop materials, textures, and decals onto parts. Use the material editor to tweak reflectance, color, displacement, transparency, and texture space attributes. Add lights, backgrounds, foregrounds or environment maps to further enhance the scene. For output, Shark LT provides options to generate high quality poster size images.
An intuitive graphical widget that attaches to your objects allowing you to dynamically move, rotate, and scale objects in 2D or 3D.
Create palettes using your favorite combination of tools. Use this new feature to customize ViaCAD Pro for your specific workflow process.
Easily modify and set the default values for pen, fill, text, and dimension attributes
Push/Pull Modeling tool
An intuitive way to interact with planar objects and faces of solids. 3D solid model editing provides drag and drop ease to changing surfaces
Dynamically create linear and polar arrays
Precision tools that let you create precision arrays and patterns with ease.
Draft floor plans easily with auto-trimming walls. Custom walls allow composite walls to be created showing layers of building materials. Make the walls in your plan 3d with a mouse click. Add parametric doors and windows.
Professional Drafting, Annotation, and Markups
Shark™ LT provides a comprehensive, yet intuitive collection of 2D drafting tools for architects, engineers, drafters, and other design-related personnel needing to create professional drawings.
Precision Digital Models
Use Shark™ LT as your foundation to create precise 3D
digital prototypes suitable for concept-to-manufacturing
solutions. Based on Dassault's ACIS™ modeling kernel,
Shark™ LT maintains precision NURB/analytic forms needed in
demanding tasks such as manufacturing or engineering
Shark™ LT supports an integrated collection of 2D, 3D,
surface, and solid modeling tools. You choose the tools or
combination of tools you need for the task at hand. Notable tools
include numerous spline creation and modification commands,
seventeen surface construction methods, blending, chamfering,
shelling, stretching, twisting, bending, and foreign part editing
tools. All surface and solid modeling operations transparently
support associativity and a history tree for rapid design
Windows and Mac OS X
Shark LT is available on both Windows and Mac OS X platforms. The Mac OS X version is a universal binary natively supporting PPC and Intel based Macs. The Windows version works with both Windows XP and Windows Vista
Ease of Use
While many packages claim ease of use, few actually deliver.
Shark™ LT not only delivers unprecedented usability, but
provides an uncompromised, extensive set of 2D/3D design tools.
Shark ™LT has been designed, from the ground up, to be
intuitive for the casual user as well as the professional
designer. Keys to the innovative user interface include smart
prompting and tips, intelligent snapping through
LogiCursor™, and over 80 minutes of training videos.
Share Data with Other Solutions
With support for 25+ file formats, Shark™ LT allows you
to share data with numerous design, analysis, rendering,
documentation, and manufacturing solutions. Notable among these
formats include SAT, IGES, STEP, STL, OBJ, VRML, and DXF/DWG.
